Make-up for Black-Haired Women: The Shading Sets the Right Tone

For women with light skin the contrast between their complexion and dark hairstyle may be huge. Enhancing this natural coloring could lead to a ghostly appearance. Unless the complexion is naturally brown or very lively, bronzer (tanning media) and blush should not be missing in any black-haired woman's make-up arsenal to add warmth and vibrancy to the complexion.


Your make-up should either emphasise the mouth or the eyes. Black mascara and eye shadow work best to draw attention to expressive eyes. Red and berry-colored lipstick can do the same for the lips.

Make-up for Black-Haired Women: The Proper Sweep of the Eyebrows
